At 4 p.m. today in the Hall of Philosophy, Adriana Sanford hopes to communicate the need for Americans to think about privacy not just within the context of their own backyards, but on a global scale.
With recent advances in technology, the fear of privacy loss is being discussed more frequently than ever. According to Braden Allenby, the real danger concerning privacy lurks in the misconception that people still have any at all.
Day two of the three-day Lincoln Ethics seminar will bring Arizona State University’s Braden Allenby, professor of civil and environmental engineering and of law, and Amy Landis, associate professor in the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment, to the Hall of Philosophy.
One would be hard-pressed to argue that human rights and sustainability aren’t two areas that are in dire need of consideration in today’s society. For anyone who isn’t convinced, Arizona State University professors Daniel Rothenberg and LaDawn Haglund will be speaking at 4 p.m. today in the Hall of Philosophy to illustrate the necessity of these ideals in an ethically responsible modern world.
The lectures will kick off the 12th annual Lincoln Applied Ethics Series at Chautauqua Institution, during which professors from the Lincoln Center for Applied Ethics at Arizona State visit the Institution to launch important ethical discussions. Rothenberg will speak first, Haglund will speak second and a Q-and-A session will wrap up the first day of the three-day seminar.
For the 11th year, professors and fellows from the Lincoln Center for Applied Ethics at Arizona State University return to Chautauqua, this time to explore the ethics of cheating in sports, media, national security, international law and in oneself.
From 4–5:30 p.m. today through Wednesday in the Hall of Philosophy, Peter French and colleagues will foster an in-depth discussion on rules of ethics in a modern world — who makes the rules and who must abide by them.
“I think we’ve got quite a cast of characters this year,” said French, director of the Lincoln Center, Lincoln Chair in Ethics and professor of philosophy.
Rapid technological development may have eliminated the possibility of a Renaissance man.
At 10:45 a.m. Wednesday in the Amphitheater, Brad Allenby takes to the “Digital Identity” morning lecture platform to discuss technological advances and how they alter the 21st-century sense of self.
“Before, I think you could feel like you understood your civilization. Now that’s not possible at the individual level; it has already gone beyond our ability to comprehend it,” Allenby said. “I don’t think we’ll ever see another Renaissance person, simply because there’s way too much information.”
Allenby serves Arizona State University as Lincoln Professor of Engineering and Ethics, professor of civil, environmental and sustainable engineering, and law professor. At ASU, he founded the Center for Earth Systems Engineering and Management and the Consortium for Emerging Technologies, Military Operations, and National Security. He was previously the Environmental, Health and Safety vice president at AT&T and has lectured at Chautauqua as part of the Lincoln Applied Ethics Series.
